Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven. Psalms 119:89(NKJV)
There’s nothing firmer, more original, authentic and reliable than God and His Word.
The Scripture has intimated that the Word of God is forever settled in the highest realm and reality – heaven itself where God dwells.
We therefore need no greater evidence, confirmation or assurance in any matter beyond the Word of God.
The most effective and excellent and fulfilled way of living is where the Word of God is the only and final say.
To live by the Word is to live like God – unlimited, exceedingly abundantly above and overall.
Because the Word and God are one, we ought to rely on the Word exactly the same we rely on God. Matter of fact relying on the Word is the only way we rely on God.
We can only completely rely on the Word when we know and are fully persuaded that the Word is God Himself communicating and expressing Himself to us.
Though God in His Mercy and endeavor to convince our un-renewed minds will from time to time give us signs. Yet we don’t need anything else including signs for confirmation of what He can do or has done. The Word is more than enough.
Of the only two people who amazed Jesus because they completely relied on Him, one was the Roman centurion. Jesus remarked that He never saw great faith like this man had, not even in Israel the people of God who saw and experienced His mighty ways and works! But what was this man’s so great faith that even Jesus went wow! He completely relied on the Word.
The man wanted Jesus to heal his servant, Jesus was going there but the man said” No it’s not necessary for you to come, only send your Word!” Jesus answered the man “let it be done for you as you have believed” and the sick servant who was away from Jesus was immediately healed -Matthew 8:5-10,13.
We don’t need to first see or feel anything before we are convinced that God is working or has worked. The Word spoken is more than enough. We don’t need a shaking, a shattering, or a shining to be sure God has moved or is moving. The Word is all the evidence we need.
You don’t need to first feel all the symptoms and pain gone from your body before you know, believe, and have assurance God has healed you. All you need is – “by His stripes I am healed -1 Peter 2:24.
Of course the symptoms and pain must bow to the living active powerful Word, but whether they disappear instantly, or gradually that’s not the issue. The big issue is the Word of God is the enduring reality.
Always totally unquestionably refer to and rely on the Word.
